TUESDAY, J1AY B, 1903. "I know a man that mostly wins at cards. I know a man that mostly loses. He says It's Ills luck. All right. I know a man that works hard and Is gcttln' rich, and I know another that works hard and Is gettln' poor. Ho says It's his luck. All right. Call it luck. I look around and see folks movln up or movln' down, winners or losers every where. All luck, of course, but since folks can he horn so differ ent In their luck, whore is your quality? No, sen! Coll your failure luck, or call It laziness, wander around the words as you will, prospect all yu' mind to, and you'll come out nt the same old trail of Inequality." Owen Wlster In the "Virginian," tlon. The work done during school hours Is not all nf tho educational process. Pendleton la most fortunate In having a corps of teachers, whose work of adding to the class-room training, by the use of school orches tras, theatrical entertainments, liter ary programs nnd Journalism, through the school Journal, has mnde Pendle ton the leading educational center of Eastern Oregon. The people appre ciate highly the educational Ideal which Is being attained here. i lxuis Post's Public says the Jew In Russia 'Is the pack mule for political abuses, as the negro Is in America. Whenever the Russian government feels like administering a brutal kick to some one, n defenseless Hebrew Is selected as the victim. The Oregonlan, In speaking of the proposed Southern Oregon forest re serve, says: "There seems to he a prospect that as a result of the crea tion of the forest reserve In South western Oregon the state will have some 40,000 acres of base to sell. If i jalj ,S(rct s estimated nt 7,2fi this should lie the case, It Is to lie acres, against 7.227,000 acres Railroads accidents are almost in vnrlnbly accredited by the press re ports to the carelessness of employes. It press writers were compelled to benr In mind ns many vitnl rules of conduct, as those in charge of the passenger trains of the country, there would he much less Inclination to jump at conclusions. The awarding of the city printing hoped that Governor Chamberlain will find a way to secure the entire ad vantage to the school funds, nnd not let the base be gobbled up by the lieu land ring, which has had the favors of so many administrations in the past." It Is certainly time that the citizens and press of Oregon were awake to the needs of the public school fund. If Oregon school lands had been sold for something near their value In the past, the 10-mlll school levies that are now Imposed upon tnxpayers, would not be a part of the records. WISE USE OF POWER. Political power Is a dangerous force to hnndle. Those who look lightly upon the responsibility that ac companies the use of power are tin- of Portland to the Oregon Daily nal, the youngest paper In the city and also the city printing of Spokane, to the Press, tho youngest paper In that city, would Indicate that reform in those places means something. The old rings are dissolving wherever there 's united oppcsltici. jolir. I safe sponsors for the public weal. The county court must not forget tho county road question. The state of Oregon needs more roads, better roads and bridges and more induce ments to comity improvement. This is the home-hullding era. Farms will be beautified nnd Improved Just n the environment Improves. The en tire burden of county development lies upon tlie officials who control public improvement. Eugene is trying to stop Sunday baseball Tho only way It will ever be successfully and completely stop Tied is by the Introduction of a strong er nttraction by those who oppose it. People cannot live in this strenuous nge without excitement. They must hnve a cause and an opportunity to yell. When a more drawing attrac tion than baseball is furnished. Sun da) baseball will cease. Not before. It should he h matter of personal choice. Hoise City Is wrestling with the school room sltiiution, and will settle It gracefully. Shu now has live school buildings, nil equul in size to the Pendleton high school hullliing. and is ready to vote for still another to accommodate tho Increasing school population. The IlolHe Statesman says: "W have to make provision for schools; the present buildings are overcrowded and the board cannot necommodate all the children asking admission. It would be a very great mistake to permit such conditions to continue. They would grow much worse before another year. Therefore the matter should be settled now." The gathering together of the del egates from Oregon's labor forces In a public convention, reminds the close observer that this state is taking on the metropolitan robes. It is no long er an unorganized frontier. Tho great industries nro assuming a symmetri cal rorm. those who bring forth tho riches of mine, field and factory are devising means of betterment nnd self-Improvement and Oregon is tak ing her station on an equal commer cial and Industrial plane with states fully halt a century older In organi zation ami development. The labor lerecs and thu throbbing valves of in dustrialism, and all tno wheels of commerce move nt their command. Whether It be in the hands of the individual or the masses, power that deals with the public must be con scientiously controlled. Oregon has so far advanced ahead of other states in the Union, that she ha.j given to the people of the Btate almost unlimited authority In matters of legislation. Can the people he trusted with this gigantic force? Will they U3e the referendum as a check upon political trickery or will they prostitute It to the uses of retaliation nnd revenge? It must be handled with care, for Its adoption Is the greatest forward step in the history of the state and upon Its success In Oregon will de peml the fate of the measure in other states. Tlie people must use it can tiously. It Is not a toy. but one of tlie most potent engines of popular government ever conceived by man. Speaking of It the Oregon Daily Journal makes the following perti nent observations: "The Incorporation into our state constitution of tlie Initiative and ref erendum provision wns a practical ap plication of the theory that the most wholesome check upon unwise legis lation would be afforded by giving opportunity for the direct expression of the popular will. "Relievers in the initiative and tlie referendum have always contended that the greatest safety of the com monwealth lies In the closest possi ble approximation to tho wishes of tlie mass of the people. It Is certain that the majority of the people will never he Influenced by the corruption which sometimes taints legislative proceedings nnd the collective wisdom ot the voters of the stnto shculd lie ns trustworthy as their Integrity "Oregon is now making a practical test of this theory. The result must be awnlted with the keenest nnxletv. i.ot merely because of the immediate Influence upon measures of great Im portance to the public but also nnd in lai greater degree because to many 1'. will ho an answer to the question. 'Is the Initiative and referendum amendment a doslrablo feature of our constitution?' "Passion and prejudice should not be pormitted to enter into considera tion of nmtters of such sreat Import ance tn the people of the stnto. The U'torondum was not designed t j,0 used cltlio.- as n means of defeating public enterprise In the Interest of WHEAT CROP OF INDIA IN 1902-03. According to tlie second general memorandum on the wheat cop of India for the season of 1902-03 the con dition of the crop In the United Prov inces is so favorable that a full yield Is estimated for the the eastern divis ions and Oudh, and 90 per cent of a normnl crop for the three western di visions; but in the Punjab nnd the Northwest Frontier provinces the yield on unlrrlgated land, except In the submontane districts, Is likely to be poor, unless rain falls verj- soon. The excellence and extent of the crop In the northern districts ot the central provinces make up for tho de ficiency in the southern districts, and , the estimated average yield for the, whole area Is 105 per cent of the nor-i mill. The estimates for Rengal are per cent of the normal. The area under wheat In the Pun- fiO.oOO last year; In the Northwest i-Tonuer provinces, nt Sun.000 acres; In Ron gal, at 1,460,000 acres, ognlnst 1.460, 000 ncres last year; in tho Central provinces, nt S.CflO.nnn acres, or about the same as that of last year. i In the Bombay presidency (Incliul-, lug Slnd) the total area In British i districts is estimated at 1.2CC.000 acres, or 21 per cent below last 1 year's area. The Native States return r.Sl.000 ncres, which Is 35 per cent over Inst year's area and 0 per cent over the average. In Rernr the esti-1 mated area under wheat Is returned i at 21S.377 acres, being 20 per cent) less than last year, but the sensnn , lias been favorable and the outturn will amount to 75 per cent of a nor mnl crop. l The amount of wheat exported Is I small compered with the production, 1 nnd depends greatly upon the price i ruling In Europe. The exports last year were 7.321.S1S cwts.; of wheat I flour. 529.32S cwts. were exported. This year It Is probable there will be a larger quantity available for ! export, as so much will not lie re- r quired for homo consumption. ! i NOTICE FOB ma xiest iu Avoi usiate. yi some nico homes thu bo sold. . .D rjll Lots.
